Art, Design & Photography

Lauren Stephenson, Illustrator

Before uni, I took two years out. I couldn't decide what to do and I got some experience with animal welfare. But eventually I went back to what I did when I was younger, when I wasn't enjoying what I was doing. In my year off I did a portfolio, and that's when I applied for the foundation course to get into uni...

Krishna Malla (a.k.a. Tech Moon), Graffiti Artist

It's been a slow game -- it took a long time to get to where I am today. I started in the events industry. When I graduated from uni, I shamelessly promoted myself and a lot of other artists as well with the event that I was working on. That gave me a platform to make a mark on the place where I am living, and also create work at the same time. Jobs have just snowballed off that and grown bigger and bigger. Each mural that I paint is a kind of billboard in itself, so it works for advertising...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...

Sisi Zombori, Food Sculptor

Who said food is just for eating? Szimonetta Zombori shows people every day numerous artworks that, instead of taking form in clay or on a...

Immy Fooks, Artist / Illustrator

I will jot things down as soon as they come into my head before I forget, and then start mind-mapping my ideas on a page. Then I would probably do some initial sketches, to get an idea of what it is that I want to visualise. I’m inspired by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and illustrators like Katie Scott, who makes botanical illustrations, and Camilla Perkins. Her artwork is amazing, I really like it as it’s very colourful and I’m drawn to colour and pattern...

Daniel Wretham, Photographer

Originally I purchased my first camera in my twenties, which was a film camera. I mainly shot wildlife and the occasional sunset with it, as I was very much a newbie and just shot things that interested me. But this fuelled my passion for it, despite film shooting being a lot more tricky to master than digital...

Rick Walker, Artist / Creative Director

I have always loved drawing. I grew up in the late '80s when people were really into hip-hop. Everyone wanted to be either a DJ, a breakdancer, or a graffiti artist. I was very bad for the two first ones, and actually quite good at drawing, so I got stuck to drawing. I got into graffiti at an early age and that’s what taught me that I had a passion for colours, typography, and illustration...

Matt Evans, Founder: Box of Well Nice Stuff

The box was a collection of some of my favourite local artists’ work. The works were created into some awesome, unique products. We made stickers, colouring books, badges, prints and my favourite was the temporary tattoos! They allowed people to wear the artists’ work on their skin, which was quite exciting...
